Why is VASER Better than Other Liposuction Techniques for a BBL?
Generally speaking, VASER liposuction can be performed with far greater precision and efficiency; it’s proven to be a safe and effective tool for highly skilled plastic surgeons. For BBL patients, however, it has additional advantages that require some explaining.
When a VASER device is used at a low setting, it breaks up fat cell attachments much more gently than other techniques, leaving the fat cells viable for transfer to other areas of the body, such as the buttocks. VASER at lower power settings does not destroy the cells. It also leaves blood vessels and nerves intact, which leads to faster healing and less bruising.
Is VASER liposuction useful for BBL revision procedures?
Yes. VASER technology set at a higher setting can also be extremely helpful for patients who want to fix issues with already existing procedures ranging from BBLs to tummy tucks. At a higher setting, VASER will break up scarring and fibrosis, leading to a more even contour and a corrected result.
For example, when liposuction is performed too close to the skin or too much fat is taken from a particular area, the result can be waviness, contour defects, and depressions, as well as asymmetrical areas in one or both buttocks. VASER Technology provides Dr. Varkony with the tool he needs to correct such issues as pitting and scarring under the skin.
Is it Possible to Have Too Little Fat for a BBL or BBL Revision?
Unfortunately, yes. If previous plastic surgeons have removed essentially all pockets of fat, there may be insufficient material for Dr. Varkony to work with. However, in the majority of cases, enough fat can be found.
If prospective patients are interested in the procedure but uncertain whether or not they are a candidate, the best thing to do is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Varkony to go over the available options.
